Default Best hauler bag?

I'm looking for a new hauler bag to carry tools, gear, and one or two 1/10 cars.

Been looking at reviews on A-main and though most of the bags look the same, they get varied reviews on quality.

Any recommendations or opinions? Thanks!

I am also looking for a RC hauler. I've used a big plano box, and a big rubbermaid tote.

I want one designated to RC though.

From my research, The Team Magic, Protek, Hudy, and venom bags are the best. I would not buy the Trinity T8 bag if anything. The drawers aren't made well.

JConcepts makes the coolest looking bag in my opinion, but it doesn't have a tool tray on the top. Fine if you already have a tool carrier.

I am going to buy the Trinity T-10 bag soon. I would go for a Protek bag, but they are almost 100$ more. It seems to have the best look, fit, and functionality for 100 bucks.

I use the protek one and it's quality. Stiff frame, plastic drawers and durable zippers.

It's pricey though.

Wingtote makes a very good hauler. I haven't had any problems with mine in the last 2+ years. http://www.wing-tote.com/pro-roller-buggy-tote.php

I had that one then sold it. Its a great bag, but its hard to get between the pit tables. I would get one that pulls from the end its thinner and will pull between tight areas. You can get that one around 179.00 and it is a great bag though. Very strong.

I bought one of these:

Lowes Link

Gracious Living Plastic Cargo Trunk Yellow/Black
Item #: 306966 | Model #: 92242-4C-SLIP



It was under $30. I used it for exactly one race before I kunckled under and bought the large Jconcepts bag. It fits all my SC tires in one drawer, plus one other drawer for my 2w and 4w trucks.
